Pre-race routine:

This was my first triathlon. I got to the race location early enough to set up my transition area. It was raining so I was a bit frustrated, but was not trying to think about it. Walked around, met my friends who I was going to do the race with.
Event warmup:

Stretched, walked around.
  • 14m 34s
  • 500 yards
  • 02m 55s / 100 yards

This was only my 3rd OWS. I need to practice it a lot more. It was also hard for me to see. I need to get a pair of prescription goggles.
What would you do differently?:

Practice OWS!!!
Transition 1
  • 02m 40s

Took my time. This was my first 'real' transition. I wanted to make sure that I did it right. I was located near the back of the transition zone.
What would you do differently?:

Speed things up. Get on bike faster.
  • 56m 14s
  • 17 miles
  • 18.14 mile/hr

Light rain during the first 1/2 of it. Took turns a bit slower because of the wet pavement.
What would you do differently?:

I could have pushed harder on the bike. But being my first triathlon I was not 100% sure how to pace myself.
Transition 2
  • 00m

My feet were still wet because of the rain/swim. It was hard getting my running shoes on.
What would you do differently?:

Speed things up! My transitions were so slow!
  • 30m 9s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 41s  min/mile

Running is still my worst. I was happy though this was my second 5K distance and it was 1m30s faster then my standalone 5K time. That made me happy.
What would you do differently?:

start my final sprint earlier. I had enough gas in the tank. I could have gone south of 30m if I would have started at the entrance to the park.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, hydrated, met up with my friends.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Still being out of shape. I have come a long way since March, but still have a long way to go. I am happy with myself because I finished. but now I have times to beat. I will be back for sure!

Event comments:

My first triathlon! I was super psyched / nervous at the start. I finished. Now lets look onward to the next one.
